On Saturday, a colossal clash is expected as WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury faces former UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou in a 10-round boxing main event. This epic showdown will headline the Fury vs. Ngannou fight card (scheduled for 2 p.m. ET) at the Riyadh Arena in Saudi Arabia. While the fight carries more novelty value than the prospect of a world-championship encounter, the stakes remain high. Fury, undefeated in boxing, with his solitary non-victory being a draw against Deontay Wilder in their memorable trilogy’s first fight, faced four knockdowns in that series. Ngannou, widely regarded as the heaviest puncher in UFC history, has pledged to send Fury to the canvas.
Fury stands as a -2,000 betting favorite (risking $2,000 to win $100), whereas Ngannou carries odds of +1080 in the latest Tyson Fury vs. Francis Ngannou betting lines. The over/under for total rounds finished is set at 4.5, with the Under listed at +122 and the Over offered at -156.
